Hello! My name is Connor Daniels. I’m a 24-year-old photographer and graphic designer with a passion for expressing my creativity. Here’s a quick look at my journey of becoming a lifestyle photographer.
My love for photography started as a kid with an old Polaroid and quickly turned into a career aspiration while attending college. I’ve been a photographer since 2010 and have been practicing and adapting my style ever since. I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts in visual communications with an emphasis in photography in 2016. Starting out and willing to absorb everything I could about photography early on, I shot subjects for maternity, weddings, engagements, and portraits. Now my focus has guided me to commercial work in wedding, engagement, and lifestyle as a whole. It’s my passion to shoot lifestyle because I get a glimpse into other people worlds if only for a day hour, or second, but through my shots, I am able to express your moments that live on forever.
Born and raised in Rockford, IL and now living in Crystal Lake I believe that my style is unique to the Chicagoland area. I am able to adapt to your needs while still maintaining a modern and clean aesthetic. I’m not a traditionalist in the sense that I will always try to be different to ensure that your photos stand out and aren’t the generic shots everyone is expecting. I like to play with color, body language, and depth to tell your story that is unique to your special day. Overall my style is modern vintage chic with a pop of ambiguity. That’s not only what sets me apart from the rest, but makes my passion rewarding.
Over the years I’ve studied the foundations of photography from making my own camera, darkroom developing, to digital, and editing. With my years of experience and expertise with lifestyle photography, I would be honored to be your photographer. To capture your moments from today, and create memories for a lifetime.
